MedicalXpress: Researchers develop new method of precisely targeting cancer lesions while protecting healthy tissues

From MedicalXpress:

A team of researchers has developed a new method that suppresses the distribution of drugs to healthy tissues and also rapidly removes the drugs once distributed in the body, which could improve the accuracy of imaging diagnosis of difficult cancers, reduce toxicity to healthy tissues, and further improve the effectiveness of treatment. They report their findings in a recent study published in the Journal of Controlled Release.

…The team’s method allows radiopharmaceuticals to accumulate sufficiently in cancer lesions, while shortening the time the drugs are in contact with healthy tissues. This means drugs can concentrate on the cancer lesions, improving their effects compared to conventional methods.
